back to article Jesus descends to Google Earth

Long-term readers will be aware that the Son of God chooses some pretty offbeat places to manifest his supreme being, including Peruvian sand dunes, Ugandan mobile phone masts, Mount Sinai and Romanian wardrobe doors. Well, it appears he's not about to change his simulacrumtastic ways, and here's the latest spot from …

To be Frank

that looks more like the late great Mr. Zappa to me.

Besides, given that no contemporary pictures were made of Jesus then no-one really knows what he looks like. So, he may be walking around us for decades now and on his fifth or sixth Coming and still no-one takes a blind bit of difference.

Yes

Given the level of evidence believers require, I daresay this will reinforce their exisiting belief in fairytales-for-adults.

I might go for a shit that looks like Mary now.

Complete with mullet (fittingly, pretty Germanic after all). Do you think Nick Griffin will grow one if he sees this pic? Hope so, then he'll look even more ridiculous, the proto-fascist buffoon!

Ein Volk! Ein Mullet!

While we're playing at apophenia

The field to the right has an image of a chap in a soviet-esque winter coat and hat looking towards the more, erm miraculous image, while a large cross shimmers as if in heat haze even further to the right.

How's Golden Palace going to transport this one once the inevitable eBay listing happens?

Did Leonardo da Vinci ever visit Hungary?

Has elements of his style about it, and he was known for the odd practical joke. Where's Brian Sewell when you need him?

Steve? When are we going to move on to likenesses of Steve Jobs I wonder?

I can get you a toe, believe me.

They may *look* like Jesus, but they usually turn out to be either Frank Zappa or The Dude. This one's Zappa, you can tell by the nose.

Looks more like the return of our lord, Frank Zappa.

Re: Imposter

Sunglasses were mostly not mentioned because they weren't relevant. But in Jeremiah 4:30, "Why shade your eyes with paint?", 'paint' being a mis-translation of the Hebrew word for 'Ray Ban Aviator'.

Mine's the one with the Sunglass Hut brochure in the pocket.

Re: Imposter.

Well, quite obviously Jesus only wore his sunglasses when he wanted to go out without being recognised.........

It must be him

He's made the river next to him (zoom out and look to the right/east) completely disappear. You can see where the river used to be, but now....it's GONE.

Why Jesus?

The human brain tends to see a face in anything that looks remotely face like. Why does it always have to be Jesus?

This one is clearly singing into a microphone, must surely be Elvis?

Hmmmm

Looks more like variations in surface drainage due to differences in soil composition to me.

But yeah, they are probably right, it probably is the Son of God manifesting himself on Earth for the second coming.

In fact it looks very much like a photo of Frank Zappa, complete with 'tash and imperial.

Oh, Jesus Christ

Could Lester Haines also post an actual photo of Jesus so we can compare the two? Just to add some small measure of journalistic veracity to the article...

He's not Banksie, he's the very son of God.

Don't you just wish sometimes that Jesus would stop messing about with all this tagging of random earthly objects and do something useful? Omnipotent and this is how he wastes his time?

Oh, I can't wait

Soon the memristor cat brain computer will be able to scan for GoGEarth (God on Google Earth) faces faster than any bored to tears human being ever could. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/04/16/memristor_cat/

Then again, cats are probably atheist, we might need a dog brain computer, a shepherd perhaps.

Jesus needs better a PR agent

I mean, appearing in fields and on pieces of burnt toast?

With his contacts, he should be able to at least get a front-page cover on Time magazine...or Hello!
